There’s a meeting of Surrey Heath Local Area Committee next Thursday evening from 6.0pm at High Cross Church, Knoll Road, Camberley.
Curious about the role of a Local Committee, I’ve reported here on its purpose in ‘Are you bothered by parking, traffic speeds, or road maintenance?’. It’s also explained HERE.
One can be awfully cynical about the value of attending this committee, and the value of either asking questions, or presenting a petition. Yes, the process of local government can seem slow. Concerns are addressed, and change does happen, albeit slowly.
It is though a public forum, where decision making is visible. The local press is in attendance, occasionally, so issues of great concern will be given wider exposure.
Is it worth attending this committee to raise concerns about road safety and traffic. You betcha it is. Relentless pressure can make a difference.
